I've finally done the kitchen (a mammoth task) and my friend has messaged to say she's taking me out for cake tomorrow so that has cheered me up a bit.

Well done for all the stuff you've done! Definitely deserve a break. What's the topic you're studying?

chinahorse 27-01-2019 03:31 PM

Oh that's good:-) and super well done on doing the kitchen.

I did periodontal disease which is ok but then I started x rays. Urgh.

nonperson 27-01-2019 03:48 PM

I'd have thought x-rays would be interesting... but maybe not when you actually have to study it.

chinahorse 27-01-2019 04:59 PM

I don't really like physics. And the fibro fog is very bad. I can't remember things.

Sleeping on sofa hoping it helps. Need to do more laundry in a bit. Call mum. Im so out of it. It's hard to think.

nonperson 27-01-2019 06:06 PM

Well try and get some rest. There's no point trying to study if you're so tired that you won't learn it and it'll just tire you out more if you force yourself to do it.

chinahorse 27-01-2019 07:08 PM

Yep, I gave up on work and me and bertie just slept on the sofa a lot. The study wasn't going in anyway. I may try again in a bit.

Need to put the sheets on the bed :/ love the feeling hate doing it.

nonperson 27-01-2019 07:11 PM

Yep, it's a horrible job to do. I've been known to throw the duvet across the room in a tantrum before because of getting frustrated with it... =/

one_step_closer 27-01-2019 07:28 PM

Luckily I seem to have a good technique for changing bedding and I actually quite like the process strangely.

nonperson 27-01-2019 07:29 PM

What is your technique?!

Mine seems to differ every time and never quite works.

one_step_closer 27-01-2019 07:37 PM

How to describe...

Flap the duvet cover so it's mostly flat and square on the bed. Make the duvet square on the floor. Put the top left corner of the duvet in the cover. Put the top right corner of the duvet in the cover. Hold the top corners on the outside of the cover and do a wild shake so the bottom of the cover moves down over the duvet. Put the duvet on the bed and move the bottom corners into place. Do up the buttons/studs. Hold one top corner and one bottom corner and flap onto bed to move it fully into place.

That sounds weird!

chinahorse 27-01-2019 07:41 PM

Mines very similar to that technique.

nonperson 27-01-2019 07:49 PM

Good description. =P

I don't think mine's that different either actually... but I probably don't line things up properly first though. That could be the problem.

one_step_closer 27-01-2019 07:52 PM

I'm not sure I'll ever write a book or article about changing bedding based on that description though!

Have you changed your bedding yet Lillie?

nonperson 27-01-2019 08:07 PM

Erf... dinner has not made me feel good. x.x

chinahorse 27-01-2019 08:16 PM

Oh no NP! What did you have?

I've just put my 4th laudry load on (mostly was blankets before that) and put the rest of the bedding on as I do it in stages.

chinahorse 27-01-2019 08:28 PM

I am restless but have no energy. What a grim feeling.

Buttons. 27-01-2019 10:20 PM

Sorry to hear that Lillie.

I'm tired but okay.

chinahorse 27-01-2019 10:22 PM

I've settled a bit now and one of my fav films is on tv.

Glad you're ok. Early night help at all?

one_step_closer 28-01-2019 01:16 PM

Afternoon everyone.

nonperson 28-01-2019 01:18 PM

Afternoon Lindsay and all.

How's it going?

one_step_closer 28-01-2019 01:21 PM

Hi NP, how are you doing?

My stomach is telling me I need some lunch.

I have an appointment with my psychiatrist at 2.30. Bit worried.

nonperson 28-01-2019 01:23 PM

I'm ok. Been out for cake this morning so my stomach isn't considering lunch yet.

What are you worried about in particular?

not_so_insig 28-01-2019 01:26 PM

I am supposed to be having a appointment with my cpn later. Hopefully she will turn up because I was supposed to be having a appointment with my cpn last week and she was off sick. Nobody has phoned me to say that she's not coming but the cmht are about as useful as a chocolate teapot sometimes.

nonperson 28-01-2019 01:33 PM

Howdy Dawn. I hope she turns up!

not_so_insig 28-01-2019 02:09 PM

Thanks nonperson.

They have forecast snow for tomorrow so guess I will be stuck indoors.

not_so_insig 28-01-2019 02:14 PM

Also yay because my latest postcard to someone via postcrossing has arrived today.

nonperson 28-01-2019 02:34 PM

Ick, snow But cool, where did you send it to?

not_so_insig 28-01-2019 02:40 PM

Taiwan. Ironically enough Taiwan and Germany are the two most common countries that I have had postcards from.

Looks like my cpn isn't coming today because my appointment was at 1 pm. Bloody useless cmht not informing me :angry: I know that she's sometimes late but never this late. It wouldn't be so bad if it weren't for the fact that I am supposed to be having my depot.

nonperson 28-01-2019 02:44 PM

I'd never have guessed that Taiwan was one of the most popular countries.

Oh that's really rubbish. It's so bad when people don't let you know when they can't make appointments. Could you call and ask what's going on?

not_so_insig 28-01-2019 03:14 PM

Unfortunately I have to pay for my phone calls except at weekends when they are shut and I genuinely can't afford to pay for the phone call due to my financial situation.

nonperson 28-01-2019 03:34 PM

Can you ask someone to call for you?

not_so_insig 28-01-2019 05:02 PM

I will have to ask my parents

one_step_closer 28-01-2019 05:25 PM

I hope something can be sorted out Dawn.

How's your day going NP? Why must you keep mentioning cake when I have none?!

Psychiatrist appointment done. Wasn't too painful. He's leaving for another job though so I'm hoping the next psych will be ok.

not_so_insig 28-01-2019 05:33 PM

I hurt my finger and it is now swollen :-(

one_step_closer 28-01-2019 07:26 PM

Oh no. Is it stopping you from doing some things? Are you going to get it checked out?

nonperson 28-01-2019 07:28 PM

My day has been surprisingly nice. Sorry to keep mentioning cake but it is a particular day where cake must be consumed.

*sends everyone virtual cake of their choice*

nonperson 28-01-2019 07:28 PM

Get some ice on it, Dawn. That will help the swelling and pain.

not_so_insig 28-01-2019 10:33 PM

It hurts a lot less than initially did. It only hurts when I bend it or put pressure on it. I don't have any ice :cry:

one_step_closer 29-01-2019 01:06 PM

Afternoon, how are you all?

not_so_insig 29-01-2019 03:44 PM

I am ok thanks. Bit annoyed as got woken up early by phone call from the cmht. They wanted me to come in for my depot but I hate the cmht and also it is due to snow. The slightest bit of snow and the buses don't run through my village so I was worried about how I was going to get back home. They wanted me to have a male nurse which due to past trauma I can't have.

one_step_closer 29-01-2019 04:33 PM

Have they managed to arrange something that suits you?

not_so_insig 29-01-2019 04:36 PM

No they just said that they hoped that my cpn will be in tomorrow. But they said that last week.

not_so_insig 29-01-2019 05:04 PM

But the good news is that my finger is less swollen and painful than yesterday.

nonperson 29-01-2019 07:11 PM

Evening all.

zombiehunter 29-01-2019 07:56 PM

hi NP :-D

not_so_insig 29-01-2019 08:24 PM

Hi nonperson and zombie

zombiehunter 29-01-2019 08:26 PM

hi insig

not_so_insig 29-01-2019 10:29 PM

It is snowing here.

one_step_closer 30-01-2019 03:17 PM

Afternoon everyone. How are you all?

not_so_insig 30-01-2019 04:09 PM

I have snow! Unfortunately it's lethal here with ice too.
